Bassani, Hezekiah Mordecai B. Samuel
Rabbi of Verona, Italy; lived at the end of the sixteenth century and at the beginning of the seventeenth. He was the author of "Miktab le-Ḥizḳiyahu" (Letter of Hezekiah), on divorce, and "Ma'amar Mordekai" (Mordecai's Words), on the levirate marriage, both published under the title "Pene Yiẓḥaḳ" (Face of Isaac), Mantua, 1744. Bassani also wrote "Sefer Biḳḳurim" (Book of Visits), Verona, 1710, dealing with prayers to be recited on visiting the sick. It is partially based on Aaron Berechiah's "Ma'abar Yabboḳ" and on Isaiah Horwitz's theme, "Luḥot ha-Berit."
